Oodles of Doilies

A few days ago I purchased a bundle of doilies on eBay, today they arrived. What fun I will have with these. Most will go to my Aunty Dossie who wants to make a quilt with cut-up doilies and embroideries. Although Aunty, it wont be easy to cut into these beauties... aren't they gorgeous?



  1. Can't wait to see what you do with yours! I have been collecting these for a couple of years now to put into a quilt and have some ideas... but still quietly sitting in a pile, waiting for some more fabric to be found.. Looking forward to hearing your ideas!

  2. Mmmmm I love doilies!!
    These are so pretty!

  3. It is hard to cut up doilys....I have quite a few and just cant bring myself to doing that. I love them. A quilt made out of them will look fabulous and I hope you put up a pic when your Aunty does it. :)

  4. I showed my aunty the doily bounty today, and my other aunty was there too, unbeknownst(sp?)to me,they are both coveting embroderies for a quilt. What fun we will have when we have a four-day sewing extravaganza at Auntie D's gorgeous home in the hills of Lambs Valley (Upper Hunter Valley). And, yes I will share with you all...
